I love this kind of stupidity that Mike Vandermause is famous for:
"Through the years, Thompson smartly has avoided bidding for overpriced free agents from other teams. Opening the vault for his players makes more sense because the Packers know what they’re getting."
Apparently Vandermause considers the Saints "stupid" to use of free agency to build a Super Bowl winner. According to Vandermause it's "smart" to avoid using free agency to improve.
It totally escapes Vandermause that some GMs (the good GMs) know what they are getting when they wisely sign free agents from other teams. Because Vandermause has his head securely placed up TT's butt, he describes the FAs that haven't been signed by TT as "overpriced." Unrestricted FAs almost always go to the highest bidder. The lame "overpriced" argument is meaningless. Is Vandermause saying it was stupid every time that TT has signed free agents from other teams? After all, they didn't sign for the least money they could get.
The best GMs use free agency effectively to improve their team. Ted "43-40" Thompson obviously does not.
As Green Bay Press Gazette Sports Editor and unabashed TT supporter, Mike Vandermause, more than any one other person, is the reason the Packers are still saddled with a 43-40 GM! Is it really too much to ask Vandermause to act like a journalist instead of a cheerleader?
I would say the same thing on the GBPG site, but if you do, your comments stop appearing. Trust me, I know. Apparently, Mike is a little bit sensitive to people pointing out the truth.
